    muchos pressure drop I predict on multiple intercoolers- turbo working well past 2bar I predict if checked. (32psi is my guess)

    instead of fixating on just one thing.. temps - consider flow.. and pressure..

    Flow makes power. Pressure pushes thru the flow.. Excessive pressure makes unwanted heat for no flow benefit.

    my mantra remains "its all about the flow"

    minimise losses, work things more efficiently, then heat management becomes less about dealing with the consequence, and optimising what you have got... and ultimately making more power than joe bloggs who just cranks up the boost and everything is quietly nuking itself to death.

    The 3" TIP is perfect example of this approach "Efficiency in Action"

    Have you thought about some aftermarket DRLs to stick on your boost pipes to act as fogs??...

    Yeah I like to think that Dave's turbo is working its tiny nuts off

    You're right Bill it's time for me to start enjoying the thing now. The car is running well, sounds nice, and is keeping up with other cars I didn't expect it to, I am happy, believe it or not

    When I get home tonight I'm going to look at the possibility of getting something like this to fill the gap a bit:

    BLACK PLASTIC RS4 R32 LOOK RACE MESH SUIT GRILL BUMPER on eBay (end time 29-Jul-11 14:23:56 BST)

    It's not so much the lack of fogs that bother me as they never really got used. It's the bloody grate gaping holes where you can see the clamps and hoses.

    Lol well if it is 32 psi its doing well as its been like that well over a year /15000 miles,
    I do need to check it and will at the weekend, if its anything over 3psi drop i will look at a different set up, i dont mind being wrong, im no tuner..
    If the psi was that high surley the intake temps would be through the roof and the manifold on meltdown?

    nope.. with that many intercoolers, the air will come out cooler.. for sure.. The qty of air which makes it out however wont be as much, dropping pressure as it does..

    and that 32psi is what Danes CR was doing on the shyte AH small core! Its not a wild arse guess.. it was sadly oh too real!

    I've been a busy boy again tonight. I wasn't happy with the gaping holes left by the fog lights so I decided to have a crack at trimming down the old fog grills. I'm quite happy with the result:














    I've also been out logging again..... I know, I know, I should just enjoy it but I thought I'd try Tam's AIT sensor and also see what difference the rain made to the AITs. Logs to follow

    Right first off went for a blast with Tam's AIT sensor and got the following results. Ambient temp was 14.5 degrees and it was raining lightly:

    Check out the MAF reading



    I pulled over and swapped to my AIT sensor and got the following:



    So safe to say the sensor is fine.

    It's difficult to tell what difference the rain on the FMIC makes but I'm guessing it must be a couple of degrees.

    It's peaking at 21psi Dave. I didn't want to pump the boost up too high as I only have standard rods. If I get my rods changed I can push a little more power out the old girl.

    There's no going back to the fogs. I had to hack out the brackets and clips for the pipework to fit. My attemp with the grills is as good as it will get. It definitely looks better with the grills in, the photos dont do it justice really.

    What if you were able to weld reducing 45deg pipes onto the end tanks, as in cutting the pies at an angle so they are swept back from the bumper. Would you have been able to keep the fogs. Just trying to find ways of getting away with not loosing the fogs.

    Not unless the end tank diameter was taken down to 60mm and you would have to use 90 degree because 45 degree would hit the back of the fogs. The core size is spot on its just the in/out is a bit too big for the fogs.
